They help build motivation, create race events, support networks and provide a healthy social outlet for both new runners and veterans of the sport. They work with local organizations helping to plan, promote and advertise running activities as well as organizing and sponsoring events.

Their inaugural event will be held on June 15th at Tacony Creek park.  See details below.

A portion this year’s inaugural run’s  proceeds will go to the Salvation Army’s New Day to Stop Trafficking Program

Salvation Army to Return to Frankford

Welcome Home

After a number of idle years, The Salvation Army is to reopen it’s Frankford Center at 4342 Frankford Avenue.

I spoke with Major Frederick Clarke, Corps Officer, and he stated that after some repair work to update the Center and installation of a handicap accessible elevator, the center is looking to reopen at the start of 2020.

Major Clarke also stated that he desires to work closely with the Community and plans are to provide counseling services to the area.  The plan is to relocate the 1920 E. Allegheny Ave. Corps Center to Frankford and close that one due to high repair costs of the building.

Thanks for the tip from Rev. Patrick Hodynski, F.O.R.C.E. Philadelphia
